Radio Weblogs Wish: I have checked the preferences box to notify www.weblogs.com when my Radio Weblog is updated. There are various other services that feed off of this, that I talk about in my stories about Link Services, Search Engine Tips, etc. My updates are often in the area of the individual stories, most of them have to do with some Radio Documentation, or Blog Software in general, but the latest one I working on is a Science Fiction topic. What seems to show up on www.weblogs.com is the url for my general home page. It might be nice if it was the url of what changed or updated, unless the story I working on is not quite ready for people to see yet. So here is my idea for a future variant on the current service.
On the page where we do the Preferences to notify www.weblogs.com there would be a secondary box ... if we are updating stories do we want what is sent to www.weblogs.com to be the url of our home page or the individual stories we just updated? Then on the page where we have a submit button to input the text to some stories we just added or changed, there would be another check box (only if notifying www.weblogs.com had been activated by us on the regular Preferences) where we would have the option for this particular update to just have our regular home page url be what goes to the folks viewing www.weblogs.com - this way we can have the best of all possible worlds.
Some people may continue to keep their stories hidden from public view until ready to share them, while other people can make it easier for people to see what stories just got updated or added.
